Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Tom Pollard at Spire include:
I qualified in medicine at the University of Bristol, after being awarded a BSc for research in pathology and microbiology. Following basic surgical training, which included plastic and cardiothoracic surgery, my specialist orthopaedic training was on the Oxford programme. During this, I gained an MD for a thesis on the causes, investigation and treatment of early osteoarthritis of the hip, and was appointed as a Clinical Lecturer in Orthopaedic and Trauma surgery at the University of Oxford.
My Fellowship training was at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust, Reading, where I developed my specialist skills in hip arthroscopy, and hip and knee replacement and revision surgery. Thereafter I was invited to stay in the department as a locum Consultant from January 2012, prior to gaining a substantive Consultant appointment there in November 2012 and joining Spire Dunedin Hospital in January 2013.
My pioneering research has been recognised by winning two of the first three annual awards made by the International Society for Hip Arthroscopy, and has gained me an international reputation in the cause and treatment of young adult hip conditions.
I am regularly invited to lecture both nationally and internationally and I teach on hip arthroscopy courses.
Special Clinical Interests: Young adult hip problems including femoroacetabular impingement, dysplasia, labral tears and early osteoarthritis, and their treatment using arthroscopic techniques. Primary and Revision hip and knee replacement surgery, and knee arthroscopy.

Mr Pollard went to school in nearby Abingdon, and was a keen sportsman, playing cricket for Oxfordshire throughout this period. He is now married with two children, and enjoys providing the same level of support for their sporting development as he received himself.Back to top
